Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids to improve their appearance. The procedure can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons.Cosmetic eyelid surgery is usually done to correct sagging or drooping eyelids that can give a person a tired or aged appearance. It can also help to remove under-eye bags or dark circles and create a more youthful and refreshed look.

Functional eyelid surgery, on the other hand, is performed to improve the function of the eyelids. This may be necessary in cases where the eyelids are drooping to the extent that they impair vision, or where excess skin and fat are causing discomfort.

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and may take up to a few hours depending on the extent of the surgery. Recovery time varies, but most people are able to return to work within a week or two after the procedure.

As part of the aging process our upper and lower eyelids begin to droop or become baggy and puffy — our skin stretches, our muscles weaken and fat deposits become more obvious. Contributing factors may simply be genetics, however, stress, poor sleeping patterns, or even diet and smoking sustained over a long period of time can result in premature aging.

There is however a solution — eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, as it is often referred to as ‘blepharoplasty’ is the surgical removal of skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery has become one of the UK’s most frequently carried out surgical procedures. This relatively straightforward procedure has the ability to transform a patient’s face presenting a more youthful and ‘brighter’ appearance.

The procedure involves removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelids to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and the extent of the surgery. The surgeon will make incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize scarring.

For upper eyelid surgery, the surgeon will remove excess skin and fat from the eyelid, and may also tighten the underlying muscle. For lower eyelid surgery, the surgeon will either remove or redistribute excess fat, and may also remove excess skin.

Once the excess tissue has been removed or repositioned, the surgeon will close the incisions with small sutures or surgical glue. The procedure typically takes about one to three hours to complete.

After the surgery, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with medication and cold compresses. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within one to two weeks.
